My oncologist-Dr. Dietrich-retires from United States Army today. He has been by my side for 6 years. Two times, he literally saved my life. I will be forever grateful to him for giving me more time to do the things I want to do in life. His kind manner has changed the way I see the medical profession. I am headed to his retirement ceremony now!
I wrote a poem
Dr. Dietrich-the cancer doc
helping patients with their fear and shock
his most helpful phrase-“I’m not worried”
kept me from feeling flustered and hurried
each appointment began with a little chit chat
I know I’m really going to miss that
He leave us now with his beautiful wife
off to Kentucky…for a brand new life
forever he will stay in our hearts
cancer’s got nothing when he gets to start
with every person he’s walked a few miles
always kicking it Dietrich style!
for me he’s the best..there is no second
my own super hero, my own secret weapon
thank you for all you have done
I actually think we did have some fun
One thought on “My Poem for Dr. Dietrich”
Hopefully, Trippler will find you an ‘almost as good’ oncologist. They’ve done a pretty good job of keeping you with us so far. I know you’ll miss him and that doctor/patient relationship is so important.
